Solitaire Rules

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2 can be played on an Ace).

Tableau (8 columns of 6 cards each)

  • Build down in suit sequence (for example, a 10 can be played only on a Jack).

  • The top card of each pile is available for play on another tableau pile, the foundations or the cells.

  • Move groups of cards if they are in sequence and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.

  • Spaces may be filled only with a King or a King-sequence.

Cells (or Reserves; 8 cells)

  • These are the "cells". These cells are storage locations for cards being played to the foundations and the tableau.

  • The game starts with 4-filled cells.

  • Cards in the cells can be moved to the foundations and the tableau.

  • Cells can only hold one card at a time.
